when the album first came out i didn't really like it ,but it has grown on me over the years.Do any other members of the band play on this track? Or is it Freddie out on his own.I cant remember, its been a while since i have heard it.

There is some quiet brush drumming by Roger and some absolutely excellent bass playing by John, some of his best. No Brian though.

Beatiful song. One of my favourites. Freddie's voice shines in this particular one.
It is also further evidence of the great ability of Queen (and particularly Freddie) when composing various genres. Queen was a
truly eclectic band, and that's what makes them such a big band.

It's a great number. While the most noticeable things are of course the piano and the vocal/melody/lyrics, I think the drum-part's amazing, very simple but very hard to get right.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

I don't usually like that style of music, but I think Queen's Melancholy Blues is wonderfully over-the-top. I love it!

It's a wonderful song, I'm always singing along with it.
